    Here's a pic of my new Explorer II white dial. I've left her at home today to enjoy some time with my IWC Pilot Chrono.

    Question for you watch guys---- is there anything to fix on a quartz movement that wears out over time? I just pulled an old watch out of a 15 year retirement, and its not keeping time very well?

    Are you sure it's quartz? I thought the battery would be well dry if that watch had been stored for that long.

    Sorry about the really bad quality photos. I just moved and can't find my tripod.

    Anyway, here's a Breitling Chronomat Evo and a Hamilton X-Wind. I've replaced both watches with different bracelets. The Breitling is on the Ocean Racer strap and the Hamilton is on the Khaki Field Canvas strap.

    I have one of these that I'd be willing to part with for cheap ($200 or so) if anyone's interested.
